When it comes to beauty goals, the stars never fail to give us a run for our money—what with their flawless skin, killer smize, and red carpet style. Although come to think of it, they do have the best makeup artists and hairstylists in the industry at their beck and call, making them look paparazzi-ready for each and every time they step into the limelight. And truth be told, achieving that perfect “artista” look doesn’t have to be rocket science.
That said, Style Bible reached out to some of today’s top celebrity makeup artists. Take a page from the experts’ beauty playbooks as they reveal their tried-and-tested makeup tricks below.

“I take my time in making sure the skin looks its absolute best by applying skincare products [first] and making sure the base makeup is seamless.” – Jigs Mayuga
“I just pick one part of the face to play up—sometimes just the brows, sometimes the lips. I stick to the classic look most of the time. I go for elegant more than flashy.” – Denise Go-Ochoa

“When applying lipstick, I use a lip brush for an even application. I also just apply enough color, nothing too thick. You can get the perfect shade of lipstick by combining colors on a mixing plate. This is how I get the most flattering and customized shade for a client.” – Mickey See

“A celebrity should identify her best look and own it. The makeup has to complement the clothes, the setting and the story. Too much ‘pak’ all the time makes ‘pak’ common.” – Juan Sarte
